Okay, I've been working with plasticine for years. I can create cartoon characters that are almost identical to their counterparts (just in a 3D format). However, to animate them... they don't move…Continue
"I don't think there is a better clay type material than plasticine, if you want to do clay animation. Some of us prefer to use other types of materials like foam latex that can bend and be animated, but don't have the ability to be…"

"I love it. Granted, I only saw a couple videos here because I'm new to this site... but this is really great. The animation is smooth, sets are wonderful, lighting is great... looks professional. The character design looks scary because of the…"
This is an animation I started production on back in January of this year, and finished it up just last month in July. Attempted to step outside my comfort zone by mixing claymation, 2D animation, and human animation. Focused more on the subtle…Continue
